The routes are characterized as relatively flat; there is no need to be long and steep mountain climb, but the terrain is hilly indeed, with very regular (short). People who bike at home on an e-bike, We recommend that, if they choose this trip, rent an E-bike, otherwise they will find hard routes. We had an excellent bike with gears for excellent uphill. The routes are similar in distance just right and very varied; every time you cycle through another beautiful scenery, especially the combination of interior and coast is a good choice. The routes to the coast (Mar Menor and Mediterranean) were very special, especially with the boat trip there. In Mula in hospederia we were received very hospitable and good food and drink provided. The room (apartment) was simple but neat and clean. This small hotel was very nice in the countryside with stunning views. The hotel in Bullas is a business hotel, but for one night it was fine. The people are friendly and we got to our request immediately a quiet room. In Caravaca we had another authentic hotel in the old town and here we were received very friendly and welcoming. What struck us was that really nobody speaks English in the interior, only Spanish. Fortunately, I speak enough Spanish to understand what they wanted or asked, but this is a problem for those who do not speak Spanish. Therefore you those who choose this trip must advise to take a dictionary in any case or even better learn some Spanish words. The organization of EntreTierras was excellent, and the local agent, Alex, deserves a big compliment. Everything was right and the trails were perfectly described. He cycled along one day and that was very enjoyable and instructive, as he told details of the landscape. We were lucky that the weather was fine all week 33 degrees and little wind, a little hot, but it was still good to do and the beer tasted after the better. Conclusion: We have had a fantastic week and enjoyed EVERYTHING and we would therefore appreciate this trip with a 9 !!

Cycling the Via Verdes is a very nice way to view the environment as the tracks have been made on dikes. The tracks from Murcia to Caravaca are most of the times not in a good condition, a mountainbike is recommended. Especially for the naturaleza tour around Caravaca. The climbing parts of the tours are concentrated around the casco antiguos of the places.
